Morning sports fans.
Blogger Geoff’s I.T system has failed him this morning, so I am filling in for him.
Apologies for the poor headline, its bad isn’t it?
Pato the duck is out injured for the next few weeks due to a twisted knee that he managed to pick up at Fiorentina. The guy has been on fire of late and has had a few Gooners panicking ahead of the Milan game. Now I can’t confirm that the Fiorentina grounds keeper is called Willy, probably Willisandro or something like that, but whatever his name is, we at Le Grove salute his shoddy pitchmanship! Pato will miss the first game for definite and has caused a striker crisis for Milan! Bravo Willisandro!
There are a lot of people talking about Theo this morning, Pearce had this to say,
‘I know full well if you take Theo out of Arsenal and put him in a lesser side somewhere he’ll start every week.’
‘But he’s playing for one of the top sides in the world, so he’s not going to start every week.’
A glowing reference you have to say. He is young and I think we all forget about that. When he learns to make snap decisions on the pitch instead of dithering and dinking those chipped crosses into the box, I am sure he will blossom!
Keo-wn had this to say,
‘Arsene has a great record of bringing young talent through and I’m certain that will be the case with Theo.’
‘I remember when he joined the club, I was still playing and he was terrific in training.’
‘He’s got everything you need to be a top-class player — speed, agility, and skill.’
‘I just think that he needs to grow up and learn the game though.’
‘Sometimes he tries to run at people too fast and loses the ball when really he needs to slow down and take a better option.’
I think Arsenal fans should take not that Keown and Pearce are no footballing mugs; they’ve played with the best so if they are saying he will be good, you have to believe them!
Is this week dragging for anyone yet?
